2017_November Happenings @ Riverside

Women's Bible Study

Join us for  Max Lucado’s video study “Because of Bethlehem” where we will explore the gift of how the One who made everything chose to make Himself nothing for us. We will begin on Friday, November 3rd at 9:30 AM and continue through the Christmas season at Betty Rodriguez's residence.

Daylight Saving Time

Daylight Saving Time begins Sunday, November 5th at 2:00 AM. Don't forget to "fall back" one hour before you go to sleep on Saturday night.

Women of Promise Mission Project

Women of Promise will be joining the Florida Baptist Children's Home (FBCH) in their annual Diaper Drive. The goal of the FBCH is to collect 600,000 diapers for children in need by Orphan Sunday, November 12th. We would like to invite you to join us in this drive. Riverside's goal is 1,000 diapers which will help children in need throughout the world. Diapers will be collected in the Foyer until November 12th.

Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child is a fantastic way to get involved in the evangelism and discipleship of children around the world. Every gift is an opportunity to share the Gospel. Many boys and girls also participate in the 12-lesson discipleship course, The Greatest Journey, where they learn how to faithfully follow Christ and share Him with others. Information as to what can go in a shoebox has changed. Please read the brochure as to what can be included or click on the following link: https://www.samaritanspurse.org/occ. Boxes must be to the church by Sunday, November 12th as they need be taken to the relay station.

Thanksgiving Luncheon and Service

Join us as we come together as a family to thank God for all He's done in our lives. We will have a luncheon at 12:30 PM in the Fellowship Hall followed by our Thanksgiving Service on Sunday, November 19th. Our luncheon will be a catered affair. Tickets will be on sale until November 12th and WILL NOT be sold at the door. Cost is $11 for adults and $6 for children (10 and under) and can be purchased in the Church Office or at the table in the Foyer on Sundays. Our menu is Roasted Sliced Turkey, Stuffing, Mashed Potatoes & Gravy, Sweet Potato Casserole, Green Beans, Rolls, dessert, and beverage.
